Centre for Music and Science


We are very proud of our nine Part II project students who completed their studies this summer. Each of them conducted their own research project over the course of the academic year, which they wrote up as a dissertation for their final examinations. Topics included emotion, acoustics, memorability, musical abilities, and ADHD.

We are particularly excited for several of these students to be continuing onto postgraduate studies in music psychology: five going to the Goldsmiths Music Mind & Brain programme (Juliet Firth, Lizzie Robbings, Lottie Anstee, Megan Robinson, and Silas Sanders), and one to the Cambridge Music & Science MPhil (Hannah Wilkie). Two others will be going onto study at music college (Ellis Thomas, Emily Trubshaw), and one more to pursue an MPhil in Digital Humanities at Cambridge. Congratulations everyone!
